Join us!

Would you like to sing with us? We are always pleased to welcome new members to our choir! We sing from scores, rather than by ear, and perform a range of SATB choral music - from J. S. Bach through to Rutter. We do not audition, and you can try us out for two weeks before signing up for the term.  

Just turn up on a Monday at 7.30 pm. See below for term dates and our Diary for the finer details!

Or, get in touch with our Membership Secretary (see Contact for more details).

I hadn’t sung with a choir for over 15 years and was looking for somewhere to sing which was well-organised and professional, but also friendly and laid back. I have been made welcome since the first moment I showed up and it is a pleasure to sing with them and enjoy a few drinks together afterwards.

I was missing music in my life; the joy of creating it to be precise, rather than simply listening to it. What I hoped to find in that first rehearsal was a chance to sing, with people who did it for fun first, and precision second! I’m delighted I came along, and five rehearsals (and pub gatherings!) later, I’m making fantastic music with talented and welcoming people. I didn’t get what I hoped for, I got a whole lot more!
